    Every time I'm in Santa Clara I make a point to eat at Birks's; I love the traditionally steakhouse ambience it has. I especially enjoy the smoked prime rib!

    Birks is a great name and they have high quality food. Service (only our waiter) was slow and less than friendly, but the food did not disappoint. The hostess was polite and friendly.

    Exceeded expectations across the board! Smoked prime rib was perfection; peppercorn filet mignon was a dream. The service, especially given there was a Red Hot Chili Pepper’s concert at Levi’s Stadium and it was a Friday evening, was absolutely exceptional. Delicious Caesar salads, tiger prawn cocktail and desserts were delicious bookends to the dining experience. First time bringing my husband here, and he was floored by how great the value of the service and the dining experience was. Thank you, Birks!

    We have dined at Birks a number of times and always enjoyed ourselves. I usually end up ordering the wood smoked prime rib and haven't been disappointed. However, I was a little disappointed last evening that my prime rib was barely warm. If I sent it back it would no longer be medium rare. The waiter offered to replace it but I felt that would be a real waste of food.

    Ordered a $57 New York Steak cooked Medium (warm pink center) for lunch. Received it cooked Well Well Done. It was actually hard to cut. It will probably be a while before I go back.

    After not dining here in 15 years (but remembering how incredible it was) I am blown away by how it is the same if not even better. Perfect place for so many occasions. We held a dinner for 12 which went to 8 then 16 and ended up with 21 all within 3 days. The gentleman who took my calls each morning at 8:30 am was so accommodating. The staff is over the top fabulous and the food is some of the best in the bay area. This is my new go to( again) for client lunches & dinners! Thank you, Birks!

    I go to Birks quite often and the service is good, but fathers day it was bad once we got the food the waitress never came back to check on us. I asked for a refill on the soda from the busboy and never got it so i paid my bill and left. No complaints with the food only the service.
